Description

Welcome, travelers. That’s what we all are, after all— people journeying into the void, in search of adventure and connection. That’s where Tales Beyond Time comes in: a weekly show bringing you incredible short stories.  All the stories you’ll hear are sci-fi, fantasy, or horror, and many will be written (or narrated) by people you may recognize. Every story explores a different aspect of the human—or not-so-human—experience, tackling themes like war, love, mortality, race, friendship, and more.  Each week will be centered around a different theme and, in an hour or less, will transport you to a new world...and hopefully transform you along the way. Tales Beyond Time is a Realm production, featuring assorted writers. Listen Away.
